Expert Frederica EPDM & Rubber Roofing Repair and Replacement
EPDM roofing, which is ethylene propylene diene monomer, also known as “rubber roofing” is a synthetic rubber roofing membrane. This is a popular roofing material often chosen for low slope roofs, commercial buildings, and flat roofs. EPDM roofs are extremely durable because of its rubber complex. Unlike other flat roof options, a rubber roof doesn’t need to be torched or require asphalt.
Frederica Rubber Roof Repair
If your rubber roof gets damaged, you may need to call in a professional Frederica roofing contractor to help fix your EPDM roof.
There’s a few reasons that your rubber roof may be damaged, such as if it begins ponding water, membranes begin shrinking or uplifting, you have improper drainage systems on your rubber roof, moisture is getting trapped, dirt accumulating, aging of your roof, damage from UV rays, or bubbles and cracks.
Why Frederica Building Owners Trust EPDM Roofing
There are additional benefits beyond rubber roofing’s ease of installation and long-term durability.
Life Cycle: A properly care for and maintained EPDM roof can last up to 30 years or longer.
Maintenance: A rubber roof is typically easier to care for, and more hands off without needing surface treatments regularly.
Withstands the Elements: Rubber roofs hold up remarkably well to storm activity such as hail, wind, rain, uv rays, and extreme temperature fluctuations.
Affordability: Many commercial building owners turn to a rubber roof because of its low price point. An EPDM roof generally will cost less than a TPO or PVC replacement, not only in materials but labor as well.
Eco-Friendly: Rubber roofs are considered to be a “green” roofing option because they have longer lifecycles, the thickness retains building warmth in the winter and reflects sun’s heat in the summer, and the majority of the material is recyclable.
EPDM roofs are truly an extremely sturdy and practical option for many Frederica building owners. One of the concerns with EPDM roofs is their ability to be punctured.

Frederica is a town in Kent County, Delaware, United States. It is part of the Dover, Delaware Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 774 at the 2010 census. ILC Dover, the company which manufactured the spacesuits for the Apollo and Skylab astronauts of the 1960s and 1970s, along with fabricating the suit component of the Space Shuttle’s Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU), is located nearby.
The present-day town of Frederica was part of a land grant to Boneny Bishop by William Penn in 1681. The location at a bend along the Murderkill River was originally known as Indian Point and later became known as Johnny Cake Landing. The waterfront was surveyed in 1758 and the area where most shipping activity occurred became known as Goforth’s Landing. The remainder of the town was surveyed and laid out by Jonathan Emerson in 1772. In 1796, the community was renamed from Johnny Cake Landing to Frederica Landing at the request of one of Emerson’s daughters, as she believed the name Johnny Cake Landing was inappropriate for a settlement close to Barratt’s Chapel, a major landmark for Methodism. The Town of Frederica was incorporated by the state in 1826. The incorporation act for Frederica was repealed in 1855, only for the town to be reincorporated in 1865.
